Like most, I buy, sell, rent,trade,swap and giveaway knives (lol)
An old collector and past importer of knives had an old but mint Hubertus trick single bladed knife that I liked.
The knife is a scale release model - not the pen knife second blade style release mechanism. I do see those.
It's opening hard and hanging up with a burr (perhaps) and I'm about to remedy that (I hope)
I am not per se a Hubertus man and I have never seen this scale release on a Hubby ever before and I can't locate any info online,.
Can someone chime in with any manufacturing data such as years of production and how many millions or billions of these were produced.
I say that jokingly because most guys when they've never seen a particular knife want to, and do, assume it's a rare knife.
I doubt it is.
My old collector buddy said this knife having the nail nick was a diversion devised by Hubertus to help them get the outlawed auto knives past customs after 1957'?
I will say she's a beauty but a tough opener due to a burr or overtaught spring placing pressure on the searpoint.
Thanks in advance
